OK, one by one: what is your position on the proposed budget? And political correctness will get you a certain NO vote!

Other than the one's already on the board, can anyone fill us in about the other candidates

To 10:54AM ~~ Here's some of what I have ("the scoop"):

Tracey Farmer - I'm told she lives in Greece but works for RCSD.

Thomas Mack & Brian O'Connor round out this year's Boily Bunch which includes Jeff Smith, already on the BOE.

Beth Race - I'm told she has been associated (as a parent) with West Ridge & Athena schools. I'm also told she is not well liked among many in the inner circle of parents who know her. Apparently she has an attitude.

Joe Grinnan - Ran last year but without a budget for his campaign. He's a retired Kodaker and previously worked as senior auditor for the Inspector General’s Office in the U.S. Department of State. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from St. John Fisher College.

Now let's see how long before this finds its way onto another BLOG ;)

O'Toole is not running with Boily?

What is the "scoop" there

SCATS said...

To 12:13PM ~~ Based on things she has said (or not said), I think she wants to see a new Supt. in Greece. Boily apparently would like to try to keep Achramovitch, presumably because he's easy to control.

Race and O'toole are one of a kind. Lots to say about themselves and their families. They are both very important in their own minds. They talk way too much, with too little to say. We don't need either of them.

SCATS said...

To 2:20PM ~~ We may not need either of them, BUT thry might be a better choice than any of the Boily Bunch ... esp. Jeff Smith!

How many openings?

SCATS said...

To 6:34PM ~~ There are 3 seats up for election every year.

Aparently Moe, Larry, Curley & Shemp had trouble getting 95 people to stop laughing and sign their petitions.

Dale Gribble & Boomhauer refused to run after learning they would have to actually attend meetings.

Gerald Phelon was unable to find GCSD headquarters to obtain a petiotion.

Merrit Rahn considered running but changed his mind when he learned he'd have to move into Greece.
